A final version of a bill to curb online and face-to-face bullying in Massachusetts schools is expected to be approved today by both houses of the state's legislature. The measure prohibits bullying on school grounds, buses and events as well as on social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. It also includes requirements that schools provide training for teachers on how to prevent and intervene in cases of bullying, and the bill provides extra protection for students with autism and other special needs.
